I don’t know about you, but it was a geode that turned young me into a rockhound. There was something incredible about the idea that there were just ordinary rocks filled with crystalline treasures, and there’s nothing quite like cracking your first one open.

But it’s not just crystals and agate that can be found inside a geode. Chances are you’ve heard of enhydro geodes, or enhydro agates. If you’ve never seen one, then you’ll want to see this video that the owner of the Mooney Fine Mineral posted earlier this year.

He found the geode in the middle of a sandbar in a river and noticed that there was something different about it. Not only was it lightweight, which you might expect from some geodes, but this one was also holding within it a surprise.

It’s incredible to watch as you can hear the water sloshing around inside the geode just before he cracks it open with a large pipe cutter.

But even though everyone watching the video is expecting water to be inside the geode; nobody was expecting the actual amount of water that gushed out from inside it.
